5pm Transfer news LIVE: Guardiola and Silva in Man City bust-up, Mourinho eyeing Tottenham job, and Messi could be banned from UK – The Sun

THE transfer window is drawing ever closer and a number of teams will be looking to make sweeping changes to their squads.

Chelsea will hope to make up for lost time if their ban is overturned, while underachievers Tottenham and Man Utd will also be keen to dip into the market.

  • MANCHESTER UNITED are trailing new Mexico playmaker Sebastian Cordova, reports say.

    Old Trafford scouts are thought to have watched the 22-year-old's impressive international debut last Thursday.

    Sevilla and Benfica have also been linked with the attacking midfielder, who helped Club America win the Mexico Cup in April.

    Now Mexican website Record suggest United are among Cordova's rising list of admirers, especially after his display in last week's 2-0 friendly win over Trinidad & Tobago.

  • OLE GUNNAR Solskjaer needs £300m to fix Manchester United and should sign someone like Tottenham’s Harry Kane, according to Lee Sharpe.

    He told talkSPORT: “I think you are looking at least £300million.

    “You need someone like a Harry Kane for £200m/£220m that is going to score you 25 goals a season and you’ve got a different outlook in the team. So it is not going to be a cheap one.

    “It’s difficult to keep up with the likes of Man City and Liverpool when they’ve set such high standards.

    “You’ve got to stop comparing this team to Liverpool and City and great United teams of the past.

    “They need to be given the chance to grow and educate themselves and become potentially what they could be in a year or 18 months’ time.”

  • JOSE MOURINHO is keeping an eye on Mauricio Pochettino's future at Tottenham, it has been claimed.

    Mourinho is currently waiting for the right opportunity to come up before he makes a return to management.

    And according to the Mail, the prospect of a potential vacancy at Spurs is keeping him interested.

    Pochettino's future at Tottenham has been in some doubt ever since he admitted at the end of last season that he may have quit if the club had won the Champions League.

    And the Argentine's situation has not been helped by major frustrations over the club's transfer business.

  • AARON CRESSWELL is in line to land a new two-deal at West Ham.

    The left-back is currently contracted at the London Stadium until 2021.

    But Cresswell, 29, has delivered some decent performances for West Ham this season and is likely to be rewarded with a fresh deal keeping him at the club until 2023.

    He has proved to be a bargain £3.75million transfer since joining from Ipswich in 2014 and has made 184 appearances for West Ham.

  • MANCHESTER CITY are reportedly set to battle it out with Chelsea in the race to sign Dinamo Zagreb starlet Antonio Marin.

    The 18-year-old has been heralded as one of Croatia's most exciting prospects, with the winger already featuring in four league games for the senior side this season.

    His performances have caught the eye of a number of clubs as they look to land the teenager.

    According to Sky Sports, City are keeping tabs on the player as they weigh up a move for Marin.

    But they face competition from Premier League rivals Chelsea, as well as La Liga outfit Villarreal, who are also monitoring his situation.
